New Package: distcc

distcc is a program to distribute builds of C, C++, Objective C
or Objective C++ code across several machines on a network.
distcc should always generate the same results as a local build,
is simple to install and use, and is often two or more times
faster than a local compile.

distcc does not require all machines to share a filesystem, have
synchronized clocks, or to have the same libraries or header files
installed. They can even have different processors or operating
systems, if cross-compilers are installed (although no support
is available for this from the cygwin mailing lists!)

Now, if somebody would package the GTK stuff needed for the
gui monitoring program... :)

Anyway, thanks to the distcc folks and Harold Hunt for
the work he did porting and promoting it.

Enjoy.
